Good Question: Closet Curtains?

Good Question: Closet Curtains?

We got an email from David last week: Dear AT, I want to rip down the wall with the doors to my closet as they do not currently provide full access to all of my closet – they don't provide access to the very top or to the sides. My desire is to install a drape or curtain (possibly a hospital curtain???) instead of the doors.

Someone emailed me a GREAT picture which I think came from AT/New York. Any ideas or suggestions on what I could use for fabric or even just how to get started would be great. Attached is the pic that someone shared with me, but I am open to other suggestions. I would likely use a white fabric as I want to keep it clean and simple, but I'm not sure where to start.


We love that picture too - it's an entry called David and Im's One Space from the last Smallest Coolest contest. It is an inspiring curtain wall!

In his NYC apartment, Maxwell has used hospital track to hang the curtains he uses in place of closet doors. The resource where he purchased the track is called Medical Products Direct and in the comments on that thread there are names of other good sources that readers have found.

One of the readers resources, which got postive comments is Curtain Fair, and they sell the tracks AND the curtains as well - which may be a good option for you.

There is a local company which we recently heard about called Chicago Canvas and Supply. They sell theatrical track as well as many types of backdrops/curtains which seems to expand the fabric options.

Any thoughts/ideas/experiences to share with curtain track systems, curtains and suppliers for David? Have any AT readers done a similar project?
